KeyShot is an interactive raytracing and global illumination program that breaks down the complexity of creating photographic images from 3D models.
KeyShot uses a physically correct and CIE verified rendering engine featuring many innovations developed by 2004 Academy Award© Winner Dr. Henrik Wann Jensen. Some of the core features of KeyShot are:
- CPU driven
- Runs on any modern PC or Mac
- Unbiased Sampling Techniques that compute mathematically correct results
- Scientifically Accurate Materials
- Multi-Core Photon Mapping
- Adaptive Material Sampling
- Dynamic Light Core that allow users to see results at the same time as changes are being made
Combined with its ease of use KeyShot gives anybody involved with 3D data the ability to create photographic images in a matter of minutes, independent of the size of the digital model. KeyShot supports many native file formats, including Rhino, SolidWorks, SketchUp, Obj, IGES and STEP.
KeyShot is the realtime ray tracing program formerly known as HyperShot. It is available as a free upgrade to all existing users of the HyperShot software.

Forget about everything else
by 'Andyboy' from Andyboy
If you are using rhino for Industrial Design of Product Development. Keyshot is the Sh*t. It's easy to use and fast, fast, fast. The only thing it lacks is caustics, but I rarely use them anyway. the new user interface makes a big difference in its usability. Many of you may remember its earlier incarnation as Hypershot and Luxion's subsequent split form Bunkspeed. The result is that many of us now have licenses of both Keyshot and Bunkspeed's new product, Shot. I've tried them both and they are both pretty great compared to everything else, but Keyshot seems a lot faster and more responsive than Shot. Maybe if I had a GPU things would be different, but for now I'm going with Keyshot.

give it a try!!
by 'Andreas Moos' from Andreas Moos
as independent trainer for rhino I just can say.... give it a try. eas of use and in combination with hdrlightstudio - a softwaretool for creating hdr images - you get realistic images with a few sliders.
